Mine is in hand now. Not sure when it came since I haven't checked my mail since Friday.

I got the multiple ornament cover.

I called my store yesterday to add a few more items to my wishlist. The manager said they had around 380 wish lists to fill and had run out of quite a few of the ornaments. (She wouldn’t say which ones though).

Looking forward to Saturday. I’m going to be there bright and early because my husband’s most-wanted ornament is the limited edition BatGirl. My store doesn’t fill wish list requests corn limited ornaments, so you have to be there to get one.

Went by my store and looked at the new ornaments for a few minutes tonight. Then came home and finalized lists and got my rewards/gifts cards ready.

Just got back from our local Hallmark store.

The manager has been working hard for the past couple of years to make these special days as easy and enjoyable for customers as possible. Today, she had coffee, cider, and punch available. And she had donuts and candy. Santa Claus was at the store...got my picture taken with him (actually her).

Unfortunately, sometimes bad stuff happens that is beyond your control.

The store has 2 registers, and the credit card reader on 1 register stopped working. Not many people pay cash or write checks for their ornaments at Debut. So, about 90% of the customers had to use a single register.

Whoever filled our shopping bag with our Wishlist order did a terrible job. There were 3 ornaments in the bag that weren't on our list, and 4 ornaments that were on our were list were missing. So, it took quite a while at the register to get things sorted out.

We got all the ornaments on our Wishlist (including the Red Sith Trooper...they seemed to have plenty). We had ordered the Peanuts tree skirt. They told me that all but one of the tree skirts were purchased through Wishlists.

Later today or tomorrow, I will be playing with (er...testing) all of our new magic ornaments.

We had a great time today, bought about 15 ornaments. We got our reserved wishlist ornaments, a few ornaments for gifts, and a couple I added in. Will post my purchase list once I get a chance to look over everything.

Did you check your receipt to see that it shows up there? Either way, I'd call the store to talk to them about not getting it. Most stores will do what they can to make you happy.

Saturday was my Hallmark day and I had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I have been working almost every day for weeks so I didn't really prepare for the day and just made assumptions on times.

As it turned out, I was an hour early for my go-to store to open. It turned out to be blessing in disguise as I went to another location and they had 20% off that day purchases so I bought the Snow buddies surprise and outdoor bird set there at the discount before going back to my store.

I picked up two mystery kittens and ended up with each color. If that wasn't enough good luck for the day, I purchased two of the Captain Marvel and got one of each as well. Luck was definitely on my side.

We had promised ourselves we would cut back—and we DID cut back— here is what we ended up bringing home on Saturday:

  • BatGirl (limited)
  • Batboat
  • Batman Rocks (guitar)
  • Here Comes Spidey Claus
  • Captain Marvel Mystery Box (red and blue one)
  • Christopher Reeve Superman
  • LEGO Robin
  • LEGO C3PO
  • LEGO R2D2
  • Best Nest
  • Majestic Cardinal (premium)
  • Majestic Lady Cardinal (premium)
  • Snowflake (signature) —this one was surprisingly nice LINK
  • Fabulous Flute (free)

There were several others that I ended up taking out of my bag for various reasons:
  • Beauty of Birds (outdoor set) - too big; not wild about the plastic and glitter; plus, it was a bit on the pricey side
  • Sew Sew Happy - loved it in the catalog as it reminded me of my grandmother, who was an excellent seamstress; but the base seemed too large when I saw it in person
  • Nativity Bible - sooooo disappointed in the quality of this ornament; looked like something that would be in a lower-end store like At Home or Hobby Lobby
  • Graceful Butterfly (premium) - loved it in the catalog and in person; the colors are beautiful and the design is flawless; but needed to trim one of the pricey ones since I added two others that hadn’t been on my original wish list. If this is still around toward the end of my gift buying season, I might swing back and pick it up for myself.

I got the one I wanted the most,the Spinner from Blade Runner,last Wednesday at the Hallmark store in New York which had FINALLY opened again! Yeah,I know it was before Saturday and I DID mention to the guy who asked if I needed any help if these were supposed to be out already,lol! They had put them out the Saturday before,apparently. Also got Winterfun With Snoopy,but they didn't have Spotlight on SNoopy. The only two series I collect,lol.

Some great ornys this year,and I'll be getting some in the after Christmas sales.

Happy I got the Spinner though,as Hallmark at NYCC didn't get their inventory and didn't have any Spinners for sale on Saturday. I got the event item ISS Enterprise,for someone else,and two Spideys for myself. It's a GORGEOUS metal ornament! LOVE it! I WAS gonna get the Trek one for myself as well,but changed my mind at the last second,lol!
